What the heck is a Koolakamba? in Splash Spring 2016
Well friend, a Koolakamba is a cryptid. Cryptids are a term used in cryptozoology to refer to a creature whose existence has been suggested but has never been given scientific credit. You don't have to believe in them, but it's always interesting to explore the histories and different forms of weird critters supposedly walking the Earth. Such entities include chupacabras, Bigfoot, Yeti, the Mokele Mmembe and the Loch Ness Monster.
